Ardrossan 2020-21 School Information

All student timetables for the 2020-21 school year will be available on Saturday, August 15 after 1 p.m. on your PowerSchool portal for viewing.

For students, the four-semester, or quarterly, system means instead of breaking the school year into two semesters with multiple courses, students will now take two courses per quarter. In the morning, students will attend a 172-minute class. In the afternoon, they’ll attend another class of the same duration. Instructional hours for the year remain the same as in previous years. Overall, the four-semester system allows schools to limit the number of contacts students and staff have, restrict large-group gatherings throughout the day, and ensure more accurate contact-tracing reporting. As a result, it also decreases opportunities for potential transmission of COVID-19.

Our Bell Schedule will be as follows:

Regular Day  (172 minute blocks)
Warning Bell 8:40 a.m.
Block 1 (a.m.) 8:42 a.m. – 11:34 a.m.
Lunch Break (48 min.) 11:34 a.m. – 12:22 p.m.
Warning Bell 12:20 p.m.
Block 2 (p.m.) 12:22 p.m. – 3:14 p.m.
Staff Meeting Day  (142 minute blocks)
Warning Bell 8:40 a.m.
Block 1 (a.m.) 8:42 a.m. – 11:04 a.m.
